1. #MaxHastings needs to bone up before sketchily declaiming ‘#histrionics in the #West’ about #ChineseBeltandRoad #lending, @thetimes 30 July 22, p 33. Becoming, like that #LeCarré, another raging '#nationaltreasure' discharging disaffected drivel.
2. Surmises of #moralequivalence between #Chinese and #Western rapacity by #MaxHastings are tenuous. #Pakistanieconomists, long critical of the #BRI, would remind him how 27% of #Islamabad’s #externaldebt, $90bn as of April 2021, is now owed to #Beijing.
3. #Pakistan, since 1988, has been bailed out 12 times and in talks for a thirteenth reprieve as it requires at least $41bn to sustain #foreignexchangereserves. #IMF suspicion of #dodgyChinese #powercompanies borne out in recent #reports.

Story of one of the most expensive hospitals of #Islamabad, situated on main Margalla road and owned by @DGPR_PAF. How they are making money but offering pathetic services. 75 years old Kaneez Begum admitted in ICU of #PAF hospital on 8th June 2022. If you admit somebody…. 1/4
..then Intensive Care Unit means “a service for patients with potentially recoverable conditions who can benefit from more detailed observation and invasive treatment than can safely be provided in general wards or high dependency areas.” 2/4
It is usually reserved for patients with potential or established organ failure. Patients should be referred by the most senior member of staff responsible for the patient—that is, a consultant. But what happened with Kaneez Befum on night of 20th June.. 3/6

#Pakistan's top security forum, the #NSC, attended by top Govt, military, and intelligence officials, chaired by PM @CMShehbaz, concludes there is no "foreign conspiracy" behind ex-PM #ImranKhan's exit from power after he lost parliamentary majority and was voted out. /1
Ex-PM #ImranKhan's conspiracy claim debunked by #Pakistan's top security forum:

"NSC discussed telegram from 🇵🇰 Emb in 🇺🇸 (...) informed by premier security agencies they found no evidence of any conspiracy (...) The NSC (...) concludes there has been no foreign conspiracy." /2
Today's National Security Committee of the Cabinet is more credible than the Mar 31 meet that ex-PM #ImranKhan politicized. This meeting is strengthened by the presence of Amb @asadmk17, ex-Washington, the Amb who wrote the cable and briefed the NSC. /3

The letter that PM @ImranKhanPTI showed at #Islamabad jalsa are minutes of an important meeting between extremely important officials of a country and our diplomats in that country. The message was conveyed on behalf of the highest officials in that country.
The message mentioned a regime change as "eminent" in Pak. The conversation entailed as seeing PM @ImranKhanPTI as problem between a cordial bilateral relationship between the countries. The highest official sent the message that if VONC is overruled, there will be consequences.
In the transcript that consists of more than four pages of this conversation, carries the words "VONC" and "Imran Khan", multiple times. The message is clear ,that one man is the problem and he must be eased out. The letter was sent a day before VONC was filed.

PM #ImranKhan sets the stage for his legacy in a huge, impressive rally in #Islamabad, characterizing himself as a living martyr facing off international conspiracy to unseat him. He did not offer evidence but waved a document as proof. The rally achieves its two targets.. /1
PM #ImranKhan achieves two targets: to try impress power centers within the country that he remains popular, which he partially does (with diehard voters); and to engage those voters in a larger foreign policy issue beyond electoral accountability of performance & governance. /2
Aside from the secret document that PM #ImranKhan is not revealing (yet) to protect national interest, it is not a secret that his biggest foreign policy confrontations occurred with the #KSA #UAE #France, and misunderstandings with #China. /3
